Cambodia April 2012 - Admirals Club LAX and OneWorld Business Class Lounge LAX

After deplaning, it was already after 6:00 pm. However, with a nearly eight-hour layover at LAX, I decided to take a quick peek inside the Admirals Club Lounge before heading over to the International Terminal. Upon entering, I showed my onward boarding pass, to which the agent remarked, "you do know your flight is in another terminal right?" I explained that I just wanted to take a look around, and she happily directed me to the stairs going up to the main lounge area.

At the top of the stairs was an official entrance with several counters. I asked one of the agents where I should go, and she gave me a quick rundown of the general layout. This was definitely one of the larger lounges I've been to in the States, and very nicely designed I must say, with high vaulted ceilings, plenty of natural night, and large windows overlooking the tarmac. There were several areas in the lounge, and many more I didn't even really get to explore. The wonderful thing was that it never got too crowded, which I feel tends to happen a lot at lounges within the U.S.

Cambodia April 2012 - Admirals Club SFO And American Airlines 1023 First Class (SFO-LAX)

I arrived at San Francisco International Airport approximately two hours prior to departure and was checked in fairly quickly via the priority line. Luggage was checked all the way through to Phnom Penh amazingly... although I was slightly skeptical that it would actually arrive there as promised. Early Wednesday afternoon security was a breeze, and I was soon airside in the beautiful new Terminal 2.
